NVCUDA64.DLL Not Updated

I installed CUDA V10.1.105. Using GTX 1660 Ti mobile GPU.
Operating System: Windows 10 Home

When I do nvcc -V the information showed is correct.

CMD output:
nvcc: NVIDIA ® Cuda compiler driver

Built on Fri_Feb__8_19:08:26_Pacific_Standard_Time_2019
Cuda compilation tools, release 10.1, V10.1.105

But, when I go on to view the components through NVIDIA control panel, the NVCUDA64.DLL shows like this.

How can I update this file to match my CUDA version?

The way the software stack works, newer drivers work just fine with older CUDA versions. In fact a common usage mode is to install a CUDA version and use that for a couple of years, while periodically (say every three to six months) installing new driver packages to pick up bug fixes and performance improvements in the driver. So as far as I can tell, there is nothing wrong with your current configuration.

Each CUDA package comes packaged with a matching driver, and when you install CUDA this driver will be installed by default unless you tell the installer to keep your existing driver. Typically the driver packaged up with CUDA is the lowest driver version needed to support that particular CUDA version.

Hi @njuffa,
Thanks for the reply.

No, the problem for me is, that driver version is not compatible with the required tensorflow version 1.13.1

Because of that only I’m trying to get the driver version to a compatible version.

I have never used Tensorflow. I do not understand this error message, it is way too cryptic.

As I said, every CUDA version ships with a matching driver in the package, and that driver is installed by default. So if you perform a default installation of CUDA 10.2, you should have a driver that supports up to CUDA 10.2.

I am not sure how you wound up with CUDA 10.2 but a much more recent 11.1 driver. What I would try here is uninstall CUDA and re-install the full package (including the driver!) of whatever CUDA version Tensorflow desires.

I have the same problem! Did you solve it?

Thank you but re-installing also didn’t work. It didn’t change the driver to older version.

Sadly, I still not have found a solution to this. Please mention it here if you too find a solution.
